The Giants went for defense with their two third-round picks in Friday’s NFL draft in Arlington, Texas.
Big Blue drafted Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter with the No. 66 pick and snagged North Carolina State defensive tackle B.J. Hill three spots later with the No. 69 selection.
Carter is an edge pass rusher, who had 14 sacks during his career with the Bulldogs. He ran the 40-yard dash win 4.5 seconds and posted an impressive vertical leap of 36 inches at the combine. He will get a chance to play with linebacker Alec Ogletree, who also played at Georgia.
Hill is a 311-pound run stuffer, whom the team is hoping will play alongside Damon “Snacks” Harrison. He had 55 tackles and two sacks during his senior year at North Carolina State.
